Congratulations to Nicola and Robin married today at the amazing Greetham Valley Hotel

After a rainy start the weather turned just in time for some great true to life wedding photojournalism


A great friendly crowd of family and friends – what more could a bride ask for?


A tender moment


No need to feel too posed or not relaxed when I am shooting – just enjoy!



The weather was very kind in the afternoon








Congratulations and best wishes for your future together!




Congratulations to Lindsay and Darren – married on Saturday at the great venue Barton Hall in Kettering.

A stunning bride at a stunning venue!!



A lively start to the day




A beautiful ceremony at the Church of Scotland, Corby – all really kind and helpful








Confetti with Barton Hall behind



Just holding it together….



A classic shot – but I still like it




Did I already say “stunning”?





Congratulations and best wishes for the future

We would love to hear what you think of our website now.

We have tidied it up – lost the black background – and replaced our flash slideshow with one that will be more user friendly especially with users of apple hardware and operating systems.

Please let us know what you think – your feedback is very important to us.

We are delighted to be exhibiting this Sunday the 23rd February at the gorgeous Barnsdale Hall Hotel on the shores of Rutland Water near Oakham.


Why not come along and look through our sample albums of contemporary informal wedding photography?

You can be sure of a warm welcome and will be astonished at what we do and how we work so hard to capture your day how you want us to – not the other way round – after all it is your day not ours!

Come see us – don’t book anywhere else till you have seen us – you won’t regret it!!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Dan and Corina.

The brief was to take high quality impact photographs but remain discreet and in the background.

The bride and groom were delighted with the photographs and album – I hope you like them too!


Bridal preparation – recommended for any album!


Discreet positioning during the service leaving the bride and groom relaxed and happy


Of course we mustn’t forget the groomsmen


well – ok! – I may just have shouted to them to look back – I admit it! Bride and brother BTW


So happy when couples don’t always look to the camera…


An interesting effect  but couples don’t need to know how just enjoy the result


Couples agonise over the details – they must be shot!


A favourite from the day – what a great wedding!

A great wedding yesterday with Katie and Paul.



The wedding ceremony was held at Oakham Castle in Rutland in the east Midlands – well known to us as leading wedding photographers in Oakham for over 25 years


The couple had asked for this to be  informal, relaxed wedding photography including the wedding reception at Greetham Valley Hotel


Great fun was had by all – and the gorgeous backdrop of Greetham Golf Club helped with the reportage style


OF course having such a lovely bride helped with the bridal portraits too!




Congratulations to Laura and Martin who were married this weekend at Halstead House, just over the border from Rutland and nudging in to Leicestershire.


With two best men and two ushers Martin was sure to have a few laughs!


Nothing could detract from the love that shone through



Halstead House (despite not being in Rutland – we will forgive them!) is a beautiful setting for a wedding:


A great time was had by all


Congratulations to Lisa and Mark, who held a wedding today at Barnsdale Hall near Oakham in Rutland


The weather held out as we head towards the end of Summer




We took full use of wedding views over Rutland Water


A Rutland wedding is really something special


This was a great wedding with lovely guests – we all had a fun filled day and never seemed to stop laughing


A beautiful wedding dress topped off a gorgeous day


Thanks for all the kind comments since this blog started. Please check out our new FB page which concentrates on my social photography and will be used to launch new promotions.

There will be special prices for “friends” and “followers” and “likes” especially leading up to the portrait season, from September to December.  Some things will effectively be free for local friends!!

Congratulations to Laura and Dan who were married yesterday and held their reception at the glorious Greetham Valley Hotel.

A brilliant couple, with great guests, and superb service by the hotel.  What more could a photographer ask for?.

We hope you will enjoy viewing just some of the photos we took for this couple:

The boys enjoyed the sunshine – and stayed pretty calm!

 And then the love shone through!
 Just one of the many detail shots
 Celebrating at St Medards, Little Bytham
 An intimate moment by the lakes at Greetham Valley
 Nothing too formal…..
 Remember how bridal shots used to look?
 Well things have changed!
The little ones having fun
Congratulations Laura and Dan and our best wishes for a long and happy future together.
